Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!Common considerations in cases such as this include:1) Remove her from the area for 24-48 hours.2) Remove food for 12 hours - and when the vomiting stops, starting a bland diet. One option would be a veterinary prescription bland diet called Hill’s I/D (LINK HERE) The second option would be a home-cooked bland diet. A common bland diet is boiled white rice and either boiled white meat chicken or boiled hamburger. Whichever protein source is chosen (chicken or hamburger) it is recommended to offer a mixture of 2/3 rice and 1/3 of the protein source.3) Antacids for stomach upset (often one is chosen of the 3 choices below):- Famotidine (Pepcid A/C) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered is 0.25 to 0.5 mg per pound (0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg) every 12 to 24 hours.)- Prilosec OTC (Omeprazole) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered to animals is 0.25 to 0.5 mg per pound (0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg), every 24 hours or once daily.)- Rantididine (Zantac) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered to animals is 0.25 to 1 mg per pound (0.5 to 2 mg/kg), every 8 to 12 hours.)4) Pedialyte for hydration - LINK HERE5) Medications for nausea :- Cerenia (LINK HERE)- Zofran (LINK HERE)If you have any follow-up questions - please do not hesitate to ask!Otherwise - please remember to click ACCEPTFind me any time if needed: http://www.justanswer.com/veterinary/expert-criticalcarevetYou can always request me through my profile, bookmark my page for future help, or beginning your question with “For CriticalCareVet”
